Attorneys for Teen Gunman Kyle Rittenhouse Ask Judge to Declare Mistrial

HeadlineNov 18, 2021

In Kenosha, Wisconsin, jury deliberations continue for a third day in the homicide trial of white teenage gunman Kyle Rittenhouse. On Wednesday, Rittenhouse’s attorneys again asked for a mistrial, arguing the defense received a lower-quality drone video of the night Rittenhouse shot and killed two protesters and injured one other. The defense said it may have changed its arguments if it had originally viewed the same higher-quality footage that was shown in court during the trial. Judge Bruce Schroeder has yet to rule on either mistrial request from the defense but said he may still do so, even after a potential guilty verdict is delivered.
